The project explores the psychological disease “Smile Depression”, which is rooted in the outside can not properly handle the pressure, they have in common is “not willing to talk, do not want to give up the dignity” to enter a vicious cycle, the final choice of suicide.
Because of the hidden nature of this type of mental illness, so I designed to hope to cause itself and the community for this type of depression in patients with attention.
We designed a series of elements of the bathroom clown fusion items, with private bathroom as the carrier, the two compartment on behalf of the “response to the outside world” and “their own inner state.” Innovative shape features add each item to the emotional element to express the psychological characteristics of “smiling depression”.
